We are remodeling our website to better inform, advocate and grow, please pardon our mess as we build our movement together

Your Indiana Green Party Coordinating Committee

While a recognized minor political party in the state of Indiana, the Indiana Green Party is at it’s core a co-federation of grassroots activists, environmentalists, advocates for social justice, nonviolent resisters, and progressive Hoosiers who’ve had enough of corporate-dominated politics.

The Coordinating Committee is the core group of elected officers, local representatives and caucus representatives that oversee the administration of the Indiana Green Party. At our annual Congress gathering our party chair, vice-chair, treasurer and clerk positions are elected and those positions and practices are outlined in our bylaws. Each of our recognized local Green organizations select, according to their guiding processes, a representative to serve as a voting member of Coordinating Committee. Equally our caucuses provide a means for key affinity or purpose organized groups to enter into our co-federation with a vote on our Coordinating Committee. We also have a number of working groups that work in conjunction with the Coordinating Committee and other active members.

The Indiana Green Party has struggled in its envisioning of its leadership model as the language used and requirements established in Indiana Elections Code is not consistent will our inclusive, co-leadership intentions. We are continuing to improve and refine our structure as we seek to grow our movement.

Cannabis Caucus

My name is “Skywolf” Neal Smith. I have been an activist in one cause or another since 1968. Since 1972, my main focus has been on Cannabis issues and I have served the Indiana Chapter for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (INORML) as Vice Chairman (1999 – 2010) and as Chairman (2010 –2016, 2017 – 2019). I currently serve as Chairman Emeritus and Political Director of that organization. In 2001, I co-founded the Indiana Green Party and in 2002, the Marion County Green Party. I have also served as an Activist Member and Union Steward for the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW 700) during my employment at Kroger, Inc.

I attended Indiana University, graduating in 1975 with a Double Major in Journalism and Sociology. I also served as a Journalist, mostly in broadcast news, for 13 years. I am also adept in video and still photography. I have generally retired from the work-a-day world, however, I do still do some freelance photography.

I look forward to using any and all of my skills in my role as Adviser to the IGP Cannabis Caucus.
